Self-assembled Prêt-à-Porter attempted to develop a new kind of skin operating as a responsive system to the contemporary needs of the human body, society and technology. Confronting the currently existing ‘capitalism comfort zones’ in fashion industry (mass- distribution primarily) this studio seeks to engage self-assembled protocols as dynamic landscapes to generate ready-to wear architectonic surfaces. Aided by handcrafted and software-generated physical modelling, the unit will experiment with form finding methods and prototyping in order to achieve a design proposal. 

The workshop commenced by researching the possibility of integrating natural systems logic within contemporary design disciplines, fashion and architecture. The aim of the initial research is to draw inspiration to mimic the local intelligence and structural systems of these organisms.
